The Associated Press reports:
Down in the polls just days before Arizona voters begin casting ballots, Republican Sen. Martha McSally came out swinging against her Democratic challenger in their only face-to-face debate Tuesday, accusing retired astronaut Mark Kelly of obfuscating his true beliefs.
McSally unveiled a new nickname for her rival, branding him “counterfeit Kelly,” a phrase she used at least 10 times as she made the case that the Democrat’s independent rhetoric would give way to a liberal voting record in Washington.
She deflected repeated questions about whether she’s proud to support Trump or would have been proud to serve under him during her Air Force career. Kelly hammered on McSally’s votes to repeal former President Barack Obama’s health care law, which he says would leave people with preexisting health conditions facing high costs, if they can get coverage at all

Wow. I just watched the AZ Senate debate. McSally is in deep, deep trouble! Watching her try to be a mini-Trump out on stage was painful. Kelly was so poised.
RT if you’re ready to have @CaptMarkKelly in the US Senate!

Martha McSally claims Mark Kelly is part of an “extreme left wing” group but refuses to name it. The group is his gun control group Giffords, which he started with his wife Gabby Giffords a victim of horrific gun violence in 2011.

Thank you Martha McSally and the very courageous GOP for tying your anchors to the SS Trump! Many people are saying they haven’t seen a ship so strong and powerful since the Titanic! pic.twitter.com/MuwkbkNS16

Since “Counterfeit Kelly” is trending from Martha McSally’s disastrous Senate debate, friendly reminder that Martha McSally was NEVER elected as a U.S. Senator. She lost the only general election she was a part of.
